BREASTFEEDING

Remember my post last time. That i cant breastfeed my 1st baby due to my inverted nipple and less support from surrounding... Read here about it. Well my second baby is lucky ... During my pregnancy, i started to urut2 my nipple n hoping it would pop out after deliver. Yes there was a little nipple popping at the aerola ( ngam kaitu?) ..after i give birth to baby Cohenn, my milk still doesnt came out until day 3 even tho cohenn did suck the little nipple.  But then, my nipple started to crack, sore n even luka. So i stop him to suck but i pump my milk every three hours. Milk produce was so little at that time.. So he drink my milk from bottle n i hv to give him formula. When my nipples about to heal after 4days, i try to make him suck again my nipple, so lucky he still want to help. Im so afraid he confuse between bottle nipple n mommy's nipple but then he suck until my nipple sore again. I stop him sucking but pumping my milk .. The routine going on for like 3 weeks. Until i found  the nipples cream from medela. The healing process was faster. With the help of that cream, my nipples less sore n crack. After a month i can fully breastfeed m baby. The milk supply always enough. I can feed baby every two-three hours. I almost gave up breastfeed but    My love Towards my baby give me strength. Then again i feel regret, only if i can breastfeed my caelan at the first place i maybe the happiest mother ...so I will breastfeed him as long he want my nenen n im enjoy about it.
I am really happy about it. Even cohenn started with formula but now he is fully breastfeeding. Now i believe, inverted nipple is not an excuse for not bf. even at the beginning it was the hardest but at the end it is wonderful.
